Robotson and I finished The Long Winter, which he presented at the book club meeting today. The new format was fun and the kids seemed to really like it. So I guess this means we are back in book club. We also finished the art projects. I'll do a separate post with pics after the show tomorrow.

Since the weather has been so beautiful, I can't help but get lulled into the idea that spring is here. It's a good bet we'll have another bout of really cold weather though. Still, I got bit by the spring cleaning bug. The girls and I went through the toys bins in the basement and filled up a couple of trash bags worth of stuff to donate. Soon we'll go through clothes and the rest of the house. I already took a carload to Goodwill just to be rid of it. Feels good.
Even our dog, Max, got his "spring cleaning".

I had a bit of free time on Thursday so I took a walk through town with my phone snapping pics. I walked past our local bookstore and decided it was time to finally check it out. I wasn't expecting much. I figured the prices wouldn't be able to compete with Amazon, and the selection would be mostly religious. Well I was wrong. It's chock full of books with reasonable pricing and they had a big variety. Lots of classics. I began to think all my homeschooling mom friends would love this little shop. Mom's Day Out, anyone?
